PITTSBURG, KS--- The City of Pittsburg has been recognized for being the best place to retire in Kansas. A California real-estate company, Movoto, ranked Pittsburg #1 as the best place for retirees. Movoto used a measurable criteria to rank the cities based on cost of living, crime rates, weather, ease of travel, and amenities. The president of Pittsburg's Chamber of Commerce says Pittsburg was chosen because of the university and the quality of healthcare that exists in the city.
"Those two factors, four-season climate, low crime rate. It really should be no surprise that we made the list," says President of the Pittsburg Chamber of Commerce, Blake Benson.
The City of Parsons ranked #8 for the best place for retirees.
